Geranyl Acetate – Profile
Geranyl acetate is a monoterpene derived from a variety of herbs and vegetables, such as sassafras, geranium, lemongrass and carrot. Intense aromatics of lavender and flower are the reason geranyl acetate is used in so many hygienic products and perfumes. The monoterpene’s concentrated flavors of spice and sweetness are used to enrich the taste of sweet and fruity desserts and candies. Scientists continue to discover new medicinal use cases for geranyl acetate, though the most recent findings point to geranyl acetate as beneficial in the fight against serious respiratory disorders, diabetes, malaria and bacterial diseases.
